Factors in the Spread of Lung Cancer
Biomedical Research Grant

Metastases of lung cancer is a major barrier to successful therapy and survival. Using a genetically-engineered mouse model, in which tumors are initiated by genetic mutations similar to those that occur in the human disease, Dr. Winslow and team will attempt to determine whether disseminated tumors cells are present in the pleural fluid and blood of mice with very high numbers of early lung cancer lesions. This will allow the researchers to further understand the factors which limit or promote metastasis of lung cancer.
